The second of my talks on Blake, this is on the Songs of Innocence and Experience. There is a slight drop out towards the end of this file. here is the text of the poem i'm reading so you can get the missing lines: THE CLOD AND THE PEBBLE ‘Love seeketh not itself to please, Nor for itself hath any care, But for another gives its ease, And builds a heaven in hell’s despair.’ So sung a little clod of clay, Trodden with the cattle’s feet, But a pebble of the brook Warbled out these metres...

Here is a Sermon I gave on the sunday after Ascension day at St. Edward's King and Martyr, tackling some of the awkward issues raised by the image of Christ ascending and trying to get to the heart of what it means to believe that in Christ our humanity has been taken into the heart of Heaven. It also has some links with the thought in my Sonnet for Ascension Day, which was read during the service (http://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/a-sonnet-for-ascension-day/)

Here is a poetry reading and accompanying sermon I have at St. Edward's Cambridge on the first Sunday after Easter. the traditional reading for his sunday is John chapter 20: verses 24-end, which tells the story of how Jesus ibited thomas o touch his wounds. I am fond of Thomas, a man who dared to ask questions, and this poem and sermon are a celebration of his role in the gospels.

We come to the 'final frontier', the line between life and death, between mortal and immortal, and once more we find the depth and liberating christian paradox at work; Christ who is life dies to share that life with us, we who live, die, in one sense, in order to have life with Him in every sense. We enter into these mysteries with some help from a reflection on Baptism and some poetry by George Herbert and John Donne

In this talk i look at how the revelation of God in christ, and the new commandment to love radically reconfigure the way we draw the line between self and other. Taking in teaching about the holy trinity from augustine and others, and the teaching of Charles Williams about co-inherence, we finish with a reading of the poetry of Michael O'Siaidhal, which helps our imagination to grasp and 'bring home' some of these ideas.

Christ is not confined by human borderlines, religious or geographic. He crossed the fontiers between city and wilderness, Jew and Gentile, and ultimately, life and death.He still calls his followers to cross new frontiers with him. This Lent, with the help of some poets and visionaries, we will journey with Christ on both sides of five frontier lines: Today's talk will take us back and forth across the borderline of Faith and Doubt with help from GK Chesterto, Thomas Hardy, Philip Larkin and...

The season of epiphany, which follows on from the visit of the wise men, gives us a chance to contemplate some of the moments of 'epiphany' or glimpses of ultimate reality in the Gospel. One of these is when the 'Heavens open' at the Baptism of Christ. Here is a sonnet and a short sermon both contemplating that particular epiphany.

my talk on Lewis, no.2 in my series on the Inklings As Prophets, tomorrow at 5:30 at St. Edwards. I am going to be emphasising his radical critique of reductive philosophy, his accurate prediction of the assaults on human identity that would arise from the abuse of science and his call, in The Abolition of Man for a 'new kind of science' more respectful of, and in harmony with nature.

The King walks boldly into the Camp of the Danes in guise of a wandering minstrel with his harp on his shoulders. We are introduced to Guthrum, the Danish leader and his earls each of whom take the harp and play, each of whom represents and expresss one of the self-serving or nihilistic and despairing philosophies which were about to crush the twentieth century and to which GKC saw Christianity opposed and answering. He projects them back into the mouths of the danes and then in the last part...

This book, which I think lies behind some of Tolkien's chapter 'The Scouring of the Shire' is about the need to maintain the old truths by ceaseless renewal and vigilance, and is a great call to resist tyranny and the erosion of freedom wherever we find it.

Inspired by his vision and 'shaken with the joy of giants', Alfred gathers the remnants of his people for a last stand against the Danes. The England Alfred represents is culturally and ethnically diverse but united in faith and vision The Thre chiefs represent three strands of culture and vision; Eldred is anglo-saxon, loves his ale and bacon and prefers the arts of peace but is mighty when roused, Mark is of Roman origin and represents the culturs and organisational skills of Rome, and Colan...

This book contains the episode I read on the anniversary of 9/11, of the child rebuilding the tower, it has Alfred's great rallying call to the ordinary folk of England to choose a good death rather than slavery, and most famously it contains his cry at the turning point of the battle which was quoted by the times after the D Day landings: "The High tide!" King Alfred cried. The high tide and the turn!"

I this first book, Alfred, having faced defeat after defeat gainst the Danes is almost ready to give up. But he sees a vision of our Lady. She refuses to reveal the outcome of the battle, indeed tells him 'nought for his comfort' but just to have seen her,to have had a glimpse of the innocent joy of heaven is enough to inspire Alfred to go on: 'The very colours of her coatwee better than good news!'
